Office of Health Services

The Clinic

We are located in Newman Hall, bottom floor. Service is provided by a professional staff including a Registered Nurse and three Nurse Practitioners. With the exception of immunizations and lab procedures, all services are free. The focus of the Health Services Clinic is on health promotion, disease prevention and holistic health. All Bellarmine students; full time, part time and graduate students, both residents and commuters, may use any of the services offered.

Nurse practitioners are available by appointment. Please visit our hours page to see their availability.

Use of the Health Services Clinic is completely voluntary. Bellarmine University follows HIPAA regulations. All health records are confidential and, except in cases specified by law, may not be disclosed except when authorized by the student.

Attention All Students

Through a generous grant from Norton Healthcare, students will have access to 24/7 medical care through Norton eCare video visits. This new service allows students to receive quick, nonurgent care from your home or residence hall with little interruption. This service is provided in addition to the health services already available on campus.

Video visits are for any minor, acute non-urgent problems. These are a few examples of conditions that we have seen: allergies, cold, flu, cough, fever, insect bite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, red eye, skin rash, sore throat and urinary tract infection.

You’ll need a MyNortonChart account, a credit card or debit card (to reserve your appointment; it will not be charged) and your student ID to complete a video visit.
